Mac Russian Red

IMG_9889 IMG_9881

Mac Russian Red swatch Slowly, my Mac lipstick collection is growing and my red addiction is satisfied by another cult shade – Russian Red. It seems that i get drawn to only matte formulas, is so appealing to have the certainty that the color wont bleed and it will stay on your lips for hours.

Russian Red is no different: matte, bold and ready to make a statement. Of course the texture is drying and it needs a bit of lip pampering before application, nothing that a tooth brush scrub and a intensive conditioner cant fix. And the color might not be on everyone’s taste – a rich blue red that is noticed miles away. That’s why i love it! Makes my teeth look whiter, my skin clearer and it looks like i actually made an effort with my appearance.

Any recommendations for my next purchase? Would love an easy everyday nude…

    @MakeupMonster thank you, im getting more and more addicted to red.

    @Nora – Thank you Nora! i know how overwhelming it can be, i still find it difficult to decide what color to get. What i usually do is reading about the most popular shades and then decide in person if they suit me or not x.

    @LauraDoyle – it all comes to your skin undertones – if you are yellow tone go for coral, orange, warm reds. If you are pink tone go for cool, blue, pink reds. And of course, try them all and see what you fancy most :).

    @NurseFancyPants – thank you Chloe, think it would look beautiful on you as well!
